Excessive Dog Barking Will Cost You In Los Angeles

Part of me says, it’s about time, I say that and I like dogs. This issue has come up here in Michigan, but it has never made it to a ballot. Most of us feel that next to a baby screaming, a dog barking is almost as grating.

Get the complete story after the jump.

The Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to amend the city’s barking law, imposing fines on the owners of dogs that bark excessively, even if the canines are not licensed by the city.

Under the changes, dog owners would face fines starting at $250 for a first offense, $500 for a second and $1,000 for a third. A hearing would then be conducted by the Department of Animal Services to determine that a dog barks too much.

But exactly how much barking is too much?

A dog’s barking would be considered excessive if it continued for 10 minutes or more, or intermittently for 30 minutes or more within a three-hour period.

In addition to the new fines, the changes would give animal services officials more power in dealing with owners of unlicensed dogs. So would you like that law to be passed here in Michigan?
